What's on Your Playlist?



I know this isn’t fashion related but I thought I would report on it since it was something that happened in Tallahassee. There are some definite benefits to being a college student. One of the best ones at FSU is seeing movies for free at the on campus movie theater. Just so you know, it is really cheap ($5) for non students to see a movie there. That is a huge price decrease compared to a normal theater, other than the dollar theater in town. The snacks are cheaper too. They show various film festivals, such as currently coming up is a Middle Eastern film fest, your favorite classics, as well as recently released. One of the biggest perks of the movie theater is the pre-showings of movies.

This week I saw the pre-screening for the movie “Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist.” I would give it two thumbs up!! One of my biggest pet peeves about movie trailers is that they show all the funny points in the movie and when you actually see it you are disappointed that they spoiled it. With this film they just continue to deliver. I have never heard an audience react so much to a film such as this. We laughed, we cried; ok so no one cried, it wasn't a tear jerker, but it was probably the first film I have gone to that people openly yell at the screen. Things such as "OMG, please don't do that" or a resounding "EUUU" was heard a couple times. There were a lot of comments about a word rhyming with witch towards a certain character in the film. People even applauded during the movie and were cheering when characters stood up for themselves. I have never seen an audience more drawn into and feel completely apart of a movie before. It was entertaining enough to watch the people around my seat.

Another bonus about the movie, it didn’t drag on. It was approximately an hour and half. It brought you through the story and you still felt it was complete at the end. So here is to “Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist”, simply a good movie.

Nice review, can't wait to see the flick; even better, you get sneak peeks on campus.
